I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Below is an address from an email I rec'd in Outlook 20013, spam setting on Hi & blocking unwanted senders when their email arrive.

However when I chkd blocked senders, they weren't there. I'm no tech, but this looks like a hack to get around spam filters as I've noticed several recently.

Is there a way to send these emails to the spam folder?

Small Business Exchange Server 2003 and Outlook on clients PC's. Employee change. I don't want to lose the old employees email (person1) and don't want to reconfigure to a new person/profile (person2) on the server and have to reconfigure the client PC. Q: Can I keep the profile of person1 and simply add an alias, AND Can I mask the old email address and use the new person's email address. The new person is now an alias of person1. that works fine. I'd like to have the emails go out with person2's email address as the return address.

Just trying to simplify the changeover.

This is the damnedest thing. suddenly I cannot accsess my school's website, or my POP3 account provided by the school from home. I can from work, and every other computer in the world, but not any computer on my home network. as far as I can tell, this is the only site I have this problem with. I cant even ping them.

Any thoughts?

Do you have a home network setup there? Make sure they are connected properly and are allowed internet access.

If you tried the above, or it doesn't apply to you, download HijackThis. Create a folder for it at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Post the whole log file here. Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required).

I've just found a pst file with all my old email. I'd like to put them back on the server (hotmail) but before doing that I've seen that some of them were not recived (or sent) to my actual address ( but to an old one ( So I was thinking to export them from outlook 2013 to CSV, modify that address into the new one and then import them back on outlook 2013. The problem is that when I export them to CSV, in that file they don't have the date (received or sent) and so when I get them back on outlook 2013 they miss that info.
Can anyone help me doing this? I've been told that VBA macro should be useful for this, but having a look in it I have no idea of what I sould do.
Ah, instead of outlook 2013 I can also use thunderbird (45.3.0) if it's easier with it, but then I'd have to convert that pst file.

Answer:Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

In new email, start typing the address you want to remove. When you have enough characters for auto complete to show it (sometimes one letter is enough), use DOWN ARROW key on keyboard to select the address in question and press DEL key.

This appears to be a common problem, with many solutions, though I have yet to find one that works for me. When using Outlook 2003 with Word 2003 set to be the email editor, Word opens and works fine to CREATE a new email. However, when trying to REPLY TO or FORWARD an email, I get the error message "Microsoft Word is set to be your email editor. However, Word is unavailable, not installed, or is not the same version as Outlook. The outlook email editor will be used instead...," and when I click OK to that message the native Outlook email editor opens. Word 2003 worked fine with Outlook 2003 replying to or forwarding emails till this morning, but the behavior described above now applies. The OS, by the way, is Windows 10. I have tried to both "repair" and "reinstall" the 2003 Office 2003 suite, both to no avail. Would appreciate a much needed solution to this puzzle.

Windows XP - SP3 Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook 2003

Problems cleared up HOWEVER I got a new and IMHO worse problem: my emails that are advertisements like Newegg, TigerDirect, Overstock, etc. are fine but anything else that is actually text that is sent to me comes in very, very small and I can not find a way to change it. I have looked everywhere in Outlook; Microsoft online, and Google. Sample attached.

I can't find it and it is driving me crazy. If anyone could help, I'd sincerely appreciate it!

Until recently we had all emails from two different domains coming to us from ISP for internal distribution using our server. We have now split the companies and deleted that email address from internal users on our server but when we send email to to personnel on the old account they are still being directed internally by our server and then can not be delivered as the user accounts have been deleted. How do we reset the server so that the old addresses are no longer seen as "internal" accounts?

Question: Home Email Server?

I've been investigating setting up a home email server to tinker with. In my investigation I've found that running a home email server is problematic if your reverse dns name doesn't match the domain name of the email you're sending. Apparently this is a common anti-spam technique. I have two questions:

1. How many of you run a home email server? How do you deal with this reverse dns issue?

2. How many of you are using secure SMTP (TLS encryption)? It seems like a good thing, but honestly, is the email going to be encrypted end to end? If not, why bother? The email itself won't be encrypted unless you use s/mime or pgp so its readily viewable on the disk of whatever email server it lands on at its destination.


Answer:Home Email Server?

I have a mail server at my apt but its for business use.

I currently not running any reverse dns on my server.

Answer:Email Server From Home?

On sorta a different note you might look into something like this:

Should fix your issue because no-ip becomes the location others see AND it provides redundancy if your connection goes out.

That is one issue with running a mail server at home, if you ever lose your connection or the server goes down or something, all the mail will just disappear or get bounced back to the sender. With that no-ip service they will hold the mail for I think up to 7-days if your server is unreachable.

Not a bad $40 spent IMO.

Part of your problem could be SPF and other things mail servers are now using to verify senders to try and prevent spam.

Turn off your computer.
Disconnect your PC from the cable modem. Now launch Outlook. Outlook will try to do a send/receive cycle, but it will fail pretty quickly. Now, you can open the outbox and delete the stuck message. Close Outlook, turn your computer off again, reconnect the PC, boot up, and you should be back in business.

Looks like you are responding to e-mails in html mode. Your IE internet/intranet settings are probably set to not allow active X controls which isn't really a great problem unless you can't stand the message. Open IE internet options and go to the security tab -custom level, scroll down and make sure the following are checked:

run active x controls and plugins
script activex controls marked safe for scripting

or if your not totally paranoid set the internet zone to medium high. Hopefully that helps

Outlook 2003 is giving me a hard time...
this morning when I was checking my email, my whole in-box had been transfered to the junk mail folder. By an old habit I emptied the folder before i noticed it contained messages which were not junk mail....
Is there any way to get them back... I've have Norton protected recycle bin, but no luck...

Answer:Lost email in outlook 2003

The Emails are most likely gone for good. When you delete email from Outlook the program does not send the files to the Windows Recycle Bin but sends them to the "Deleted Items" folder instead. The Junk Email filter in Outlook2003 deletes any mail in the Junk Email folder permanently and by-passes both the "Deleted Items" folder and the Windows Recycle Bin. If your program is misbehaving then there is a very slim chance that the Email was routed to the "Deleted Items" folder but it isn't likely.

Answer:Microsoft Outlook 2003 - Can't sent email

I use Outlook 2003 on Win 7 but I couldn't get Office 2003 Pro (which has Outlook) to install in Win 8.1.
Compare all the settings in Outlook 2003 with what you have in Win 7.

However, according to a thread I found, doing a google search for that error code, the fix was to delete the e-mail account and create a new one.

I have an associate that cannot see the content of some emails unless she selects Reply or Forward, then the text becomes visible. If she opens the email, or tries to view it in the Preview Pane, it appears blank. These are emails from 2 different people. I had seen something similar before and a bad Hardware Profile was the culprit. Deleted the hardware profile, created another one and it worked well. That does not fix this problem.

Any ideas?

HiI hope that someone can help. We are trying to use Outlook email signatures in our office and are experiencing problems with the font changing. The signature is set up to be Arial 10. The message font is set up to be Arial 10. Yet the first and last lines of the signature change to Times New Roman 12 when used. I have tried this on different machines and it happens on all of them, although on a couple the font size is different but always Times New Roman. I believe there must be an additional formatting option where it is set to Times New Roman but I cannot find this despite looking for what seems like hours. We are set to use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit e-mail messagesPlease can anyone help?ThanksAmanda

Answer:Outlook 2003 - email signatures

Is Times New Roman the default font for the body of your email?  How many lines are in your signature?  Please state the exact sequence of steps you use to create or edit a signature.  I have no problem controlling font in a signature, using Word as the email editor.

Last week I upgraded to Office 2003. I run XP Pro on a Dell notebook.Outlook is ok except that it will not send some emails. If I forward or resend, it places the message in the Outbox, but its title etc is not bold or italicised and there is a "None" where there should be a date and time.Sometimes I find dragging the message into Drafts and then resending out of there seems to work. I even tried sending one email as atest to a colleague which worked, then it failed to another one, even though it was also a "new" message. Forwarding a successful message also fails.I've done a Detect and Repair, but to no avail, there's no pattern in the failures.Regards,Kibo Kid

While trying to fix an issue with selecting text, I got a .cab error that has now been fixed.

However, now when I open Outlook, it is asking to establish a new email account, as if I am a first time user. i can't access the existing email account, and all of the emails, folders etc. An archive.pst file still exists and by the size appears to contain all emails, folders etc.

Does anyone know how I can locate and reinstate the existing email account to access the existing emails etc.?

If this is not possible, can a new account be established and the existing emails, folders etc. in the archive .pst file imported?

Good Afternoon,

I work in a very small office of 5 employees. We have 5 pc's all running xp sp3, all connected to a separate server which forwards our email, gets data backed up to it, etc.

Around 3 weeks ago one of the machines stopped receiving email through outlook 2003 (exchange server). Email sent from it gets received, and it does seem to receive email sent from other people in our office, but nothing from outside has come in for quite a while.

Having read up on a few things on this board & else where i have so far established:

Removing the account in outlook and putting it back on again makes no difference.

Removing the anti virus/firewall software did nothing. Reinstalling a different antivirus etc (avg) and running a full virus scan pulled no results.

Checking and comparing as many of the properties on the server as I can find, there is nothing different that i can see between one of the working accounts and the non working one.

There does not appear to be any mail queued on the server that is not pushing through on the account.

Having had very little experience in this kind of thing, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Answer:Undeliverable email Outlook 2003

Looks like it is being blocked by either your ISP or the server if you are in a corporate environment. Change the type of file you are sending (lots of pictures, don't send the pictures, lots of hyperlinks, remove the links, etc).

Nothing you can do in outlook, if you are at work talk to your IT department and they can whitelist the email and its content, if you are at home call your ISP.

ps - don't use a color that is incredibly difficult to read next time

I can't get outlook 2003 to divert incoming emails to another email accout. There is not a "DIVERT" option in the list of optioins. There is a "FORWARD" option and it works but it sends the message as a forwarded message with the lead in stuff in the email as it arrives at the second account.
The MS help web page indicates that there should be a "DIVERT" option that will make the message received by the second email account look like it had been sent directly to it. This is what I want but the "DIVERT" option is not shown in the "Rules and Alerts" menu options.
What am I doing wrong?


Answer:Outlook 2003 email diverting

I believe that diverting or redirecting incoming e-mails in Outlook requires sending and receiving e-mails through a Microsoft Exchange 2000, 2003, or 2007 account. Most home and personal accounts do not use Exchange.

Can you provide a link to the MS help page that you mention in your first post?

This is probably a really silly question but I'm about to go POSTAL on my email account.

I currently use, and have for several years, Yahoo as my personal email account. But for the last month or so it keeps getting slower and slower to open and that message that says something about "Yahoo mail taking a little longer than usual to open do you want to switch back to classic for this session" keeps coming up at least once or twice a day. I'm also concerned that not all of my email messages are being sent, even though they show in my sent folder, because 9 times out of 10 I will cc: myself and sometimes I don't get a copy of that email in my inbox.

So, here's my question. Can the average everyday personal home use computer user use Outlook as their primary email account? I use it at work through our server and all that technical stuff but I don't know how it would work for an everyday home user like me.

I pay for Yahoo Mail Plus so I know I have the option to use the POP3 to set it up in Outlook, I just don't know how. I'm currently running Windows XP Professional, IE 7 with Microsoft Office 2003. I connect to the internet at home through a wired Ethernet connection provided by the property company.

Also, if this can be done will I be getting duplicate emails (in Outlook and in Yahoo) or will everything automatically go into Outlook?

Hi Wendy,

Yahoo should had a help section on their site that has either generic mail client settings information or different sets of specific information for different mail programs. I get Premium Yahoo mail as part of our DSL service and my default help pages are all geared towards DSL account users. I would suspect they would have a similar section for paying customers.

Outlook has several options for how it downloads mail from an SMTP server. You can have Outlook handle new incoming messages as follows ...

- Leave the messages on the server forever (or at least until you delete them in the web mail interface).

- Immediately remove them from the server when downloaded from the server.

- Delete them from the server only when you delete them in Outlook

- Leave them on the server for a given number of days and then delete them.
